Aditi Rao Hydari, who if rumours are to be believed, has been approached to play Alauddin Khilji’s wife in Padmavati, says working with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a dream for any actor.
“It is any actor’s dream to work with a director like Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He is an amazing director and it’s also my dream to work with him,” she said at the Brand Vision Summit 2016 event, which was recently held in Mumbai.
“His work is infectious and passionate. That is what we all live for. To have passion in your work and to be inspired, to be able to respect somebody. I really have that utmost respect for him,” she said.
When asked about whether she has been approached to play the role of Ranveer Singh’s wife in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama, Aditi smiled and said: “I am not going to answer that question.”
“However, it would be amazing to work with Ranveer. We started seven years ago with Shaad Ali. We were both jobless then,” She recalled.
The historical drama stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as her husband Raja Ratan Singh, and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
